‘Hail, Caesar!’ Adds Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill
The cast for the Coen Brothers‘ newest film just keeps getting more and more outstanding, and if they keep this up, we’re not sure that ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ is a film big enough to contain so much amazing talent. Today brings word that Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill are the latest actors to join the lineup.
Yes, it looks like we’re already getting a ‘Jump Street‘ reunion, as The Wrap reports that Jonah Hill is joining the cast of ‘Hail, Caesar!’ alongside Channing Tatum. Earlier today, Variety reported that Scarlett Johansson is also looking to join the star-studded cast of the Coen Brothers’ latest. Already cast are George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, and Tatum.
The film is a period film set in the 50s and following showbiz fixer Eddie Mannix (Clooney), whose job entails trying to keep the private lives of his Hollywood clients from becoming tabloid fodder. Johansson will play an actress who becomes pregnant just as her film is set to begin production, while Hill’s role has yet to be revealed.
Tatum will also play an actor, while Fiennes will play a director, and Swinton will star as a Hollywood gossip columnist. The film is going into production this fall, which means we should see it on the big screen next year.
